Treatment for arthritis of the Subtalar joint in the ankle
How long did you get the surgery? How is the rehap doing? Did they offer you the replacement surgery? Thanks

@gallagher17, are you asking me about how long ago did I get the ankle fusion? It was December 2014. Ankle replacements were not offered at that time because of my young age and expected activity level. I was told that you are able to be more active on a fusion than a replacement, but things progress quickly so the replacements may be more durable now. Long, hard recovery. But, I am pain free and I am able to do what I was doing before the surgery. I wasn't running anymore anyways because of end-stage arthritis in my right ankle and a right total knee replacement in 2006.
